Trump does Miami

The majority of Cubans in Miami no longer support a hardline policy toward Cuba, which is probably why Trump didn’t reinstate the whole Cuba package of the Bush years. But, as long as the Diaz-Balarts of this city and their ilk continue to bellow from seats of power, Miami will still be a zoo.

An unwinnable war in Syria

President Donald Trump, just like Barack Obama before him, now seems intent on getting the United States involved in an unwinnable civil war in Syria.
